Until recently, however, FGC was using software that could no longer handle an average of 200 delivery receipts every day. ?For the past few years, Fruitas has needed to purge its transactions in the database and start anew every six months to prevent slowing of database and avoid data corruption,? said Lester Yu, FGC chief executive officer. Yu eventually suggested that the company switch to SAP, which FGC has been using for the last two months. With Mustard Seed, as the license and implementing partner, FGC has reported that in less than two months, sales and accounts receivables, purchasing and accounts payable, and banking, inventory and warehousing were fully implemented and used. On September 5, FGC had begun printing delivery receipts (DR) from SAP. ?Before SAP, the person in charge of the DR preparation stayed in the office until 12 midnight to 1 a.m. to finish what?s needed for the following day,? said Yu. ?But with the help of SAP she can now go home at 8 p.m. at the latest.? Yu said FGC hopes to shortly upgrade from SAP Starter Package to SAP Business One, augment the number of users, and implement a manufacturing module for the commissary. ?Globalization today has made the business environment more competitive. In particular, small and medium-sized enterprises need to be able to differentiate themselves in order to achieve greater competitiveness. SAP?s partnership with Fruitas Group of Companies (FGC) ensures that it (FGC) can grow optimally.? said Darren Rushworth, managing director of SAP Philippines and the Emerging Markets. ?SAP Business One is an affordable small and medium-sized business management solution that best fits medium enterprises like Fruitas which has outgrown its previous systems and is looking for a single integrated solution that is quick to install, easy to use, simple to maintain and allows for management of the entire business.?]]>
